Gitarzan

Album: Gitarzan (1969)
Charted: 8
  • He's free as the breeze
    He's always at ease
    He lives in the jungle and hangs by his knees
    As he swings through the trees
    With a trapeze in his B.V.D.s

    He's got a union card and he's practicing hard
    To play, the guitar, gonna be a big star
    Yeah, he's gonna go far
    And carry moonbeams home in a jar
    He ordered Chet's guitar course C.O.D.
    Makes A and E and he's working on B
    Dig C & W and R & B and even the chimpanzees agree
    That one day soon he'll be a celebrity
    Get it, get it, get it, get it

    Gitarzan, he's a guitar man
    He's all you can stand
    Give him a hand, Gitarzan

    He's got a girl named Jane
    With no last name
    Kinda homely and plain
    But he loves her just the same
    'Cause she kindles the flame
    And it drives him insane
    When he hears her say
    She really does her thing
    It's her claim to fame
    Come on sing one Jane
    Baby, baby, oh baby

    Baby, oh baby
    (How about that, that's it from Jane, yeah
    (Thank you, folks)

    They've got a pet monkey
    He likes to get drunky and sing boogie woogie
    And it sounds real funky
    Come on, your turn boy
    Sing one monkey, you go

    (Let's hear it for the monkey)

    On Saturday night they need some excitement
    Jane gets right and the monkey gets tight
    And their voices unite
    In the pale moonlight
    And it sounds all right

    Yeah, it's dynamite, it's out of sight
    Let's hear it right now
    Baby, baby oh baby, baby
    Shut up baby, I'm trying to sing
    Baby
    Get it, get it, get it, get it

    Gitarzan, and his jungle band
    They're all you can stand
    Give him a hand, Gitarzan (hey baby)

    Gitarzan, and his jungle band
    They're all you can stand
    Give him a hand, Gitarzan Writer/s: Bill Everette, Ray Stevens
